The surface texture of hand-scraped hardwood emphasizes the floor's natural beauty and character.
"Hand-scraped" is a type of surface texture. The boards for this floor style are individually scraped to create a rustic or refined texture on the surface. The scraping process shows off the unique graining and natural character marks of each wood species.
Hand-scraped hardwood floors are a popular flooring choice these days. The unique textural effect and rich colors combine to create beautiful, subtly distressed wood looks that homeowners love.
The hand-scraped look holds wide appeal with homeowners all over the country. The variety of scraped visuals, wood species and colors available means there's a hand-scraped floor for every type of interior decorating style. West Coast style? Go for soft, subtle scraping. Southwest? Deeper hand-scraping for more rustic looks is popular. Northeast? You could choose either or something in the middle.
Hand-scraped floors work well in rooms with high traffic, where the textured surface is more forgiving of small scratches or dents than completely smooth floors. Because you can find hand-scraped styles in both solid hardwood and engineered wood, it's possible to achieve this beautiful style on any floor of your home, including the basement!
